Well not today, and not in Clevedon. Although it has been very misty lately, the weather has changed and winds are blowing from the North, and what a beautiful day! Quite exhilarating even though it was quite cool.
You often get quite geometric bands of colour here looking out to Wales across the sea wall, marine lake and the Bristol Channel, but today the effect was particularly spectacular as the sun was so bright and the wind fairly strong.
And then walking around Poet’s Walk it all turned into an old fashioned nature walk, with a beautiful red admiral butterfly on some ivy …
… and the specks in the water towards the foreground in this picture are canda geese. I can tell you they were making a terrific noise, so I can only assume they were planning on flying off soon.
Beautiful! It’s not all that long ago (20 years or so) that you’d be able to see masses of red admirals every autumn, but now they are a rare sight, which is very sad.
On a completely different note, while writing I’ll just mention the special offer we have on some wigs in our ebay shop.
You didn’t see that coming, did you!!
One of the first things we bought to sell when we started the shop were some very good quality, long wavy wigs. They are really beautiful, and come in blonde, red, brown and black with red highlights. People who have bought them have loved them, and said they will definitely be using them again. We are moving into art work – much more interesting for us – so took these out of our shop. However, as we are approaching halloween, this seems a good time to re-offer them and we listed them at £24.99. As we would like to sell them quickly, we are offering them at a 20% discount. The sale starts tomorrow 11 October. When they’re gone, they’re gone!
